Tracking ocean acidification in Puerto Rico: a video journey

January 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

Presented by: Melissa Melendez, University of Hawai’i Manoa and Lisa-Marie Carrubba, NOAA/NMFS Office of Protected Resources


Puerto Rico is home to vibrant coral reef ecosystems that support a diversity of marine life and livelihoods. Join us as we share our journey in creating Spanish-language videos (with English subtitles) about ocean acidification, its causes, consequences, research and possible solutions for the Puerto Rican public and island visitors. The video invites viewers to get involved in community actions that reduce other stressors to marine organisms and increase their resilience to the effects of ocean acidification. A full length and short video (highlighting key messages) were created in collaboration with a number of NOAA and non-NOAA partners, including the University of Puerto Rico and Paradise SCUBA and Snorkeling Center, and produced by a local videographer, Efra Visuals. You’re welcome to view the full video on the producer’s YouTube channel prior to the live webinar.

We hope to ‘see’ you there!
